Co-curricular activities

Gifted & Talented class

Our gifted and talented class operates in Years 7 and 8, grouping our most able students in a distinct class for the purpose of differentiating their curriculum and instruction. A University of NSW test is used to select the students for this class, and is sat in March each year. Application forms are available from the school office.

A wide range of provision is currently being offered to optimise learning experiences for gifted and talented students. In the classroom, these include: curriculum compacting; curriculum enrichment; a wide range of elective choices and a range of teaching and learning strategies, including contract work and problem solving activities.

Our Year 7 G&T class is actively involved in a number of exciting learning opportunities including Tournaments of the Minds.

Other opportunities for our high achieving students include:

We encourage our students to become involved in state and national academic competitions in English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. Our students consistently achieve a high degree of excellence in these competitions. In 2010 one of our students was voted the best speaker at the Model United Nations (MUNA) competition.
